Don't Talk Like That...

I write to find out what my heart thinks....

I write to expose and work through the ugly parts of this raunchy disease. My words always help me understand that in this life there will be times that are crappy painful and unexpected but tucked in there are the amazingly wonderful, too. That is when I realized the only control I have over any of this is how I chose to experience them! I realized that I could understand, celebrate can survive even better when I could express these feelings with my own words of courage, humor, and grace. I am the Queen of my own life and the choice is mine!

I am here to celebrate my life, to uncover my fears, to hold on to love, to grieve my losses, to laugh long and hard, and to learn how to live a full magnificent life with heart failure.

I am honoring my creativity, and exploring all of my emotions out loud ...before anyone can say....."Don't talk like that!"

This probably does not come as a big surprise for most people!  It appears to be my life condition that just about the time I think I have got things figured out, something (or someone) will happen that makes me feel like I have got it all wrong!  The fact is, according to the SOP (standard operating procedures) I probably do have it wrong, but I have to do what feels right in my own heart.  I am getting better at feeling more and more comfortable about speaking up for me, letting go of “stuff” even when it is not what others and the unspoken rules demand I do.  In the end, I have got to know in my heart that I did my best to find my own peace, to honor my purpose, to bring my gifts into the world and to be true to me.  I am the only one that can make those choices and yes, I imagine others think I am “tangled”.
